Springfield Public Schools have a busy April.  A flurry of e-mails have been sent out to subscribers of the school e-mail distribution lists.

On behalf of the Springfield Education Foundation, several principals sent out details about the “Honor Your Teacher” program being coordinated by resident Risa Yesowitz.  The program is described as a way to “thank a teacher, counselor, secretary, principal, bus driver, coach, or anyone else who works at one of our schools.”  The recognition period runs during Teacher Appreciation Week being held May 6-May 10.  In the e-mails, a file that lists the staff at each school is included with ordering instructions.  The order form allows someone to recognize a staff member by making a $5 minimum contribution per tribute.  The tax-deductible donations support the Springfield Education Foundation while the staff member receives a card recognizing them for their efforts.  The Foundation funds mini-grants and projects to enhance the learning environment.  Individuals with questions are directed to e-mail Risa Yesowitz at risayes@aol.com

Florence M. Gaudineer Middle School Supervisor Tiffany Boehm sent out an e-mail on behalf of the Student Council announcing their “FMG STORMS SANDY” t-shirt sale.  The profits from the sale of t-shirts ranging in price from $12 to $17 will be donated by the student organization to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.

In an e-mail from James Caldwell Elementary School Principal David Rennie, information was provided about the school’s annual Book Fair that will be held at the Route 22 Barnes & Noble in Springfield on April 23rd and April 24th and online through April 29th.  Rennie explained that this book fair is special because the School “has partnered with Silver Bay Elementary School in Toms River through their Adopt-A-School Program in an effort to support victims of Hurricane Sandy.  Many families from Silver Bay lost their homes and all their belongings.”  By presenting a voucher at the book fair, a percentage of the sales will be contributed by Barnes & Noble.  The students will also have their projects for “Jersey Strong: Overcoming Adversity” on display.   The Book Fair program also operates online at www.bn.com/bookfairs by using the book fair ID # 11046307.
